MAAC Players---Megan Lamoureux, Marist
Megan Lamoureux was among the MAAC leaders in all offensive categories when she suffered a season ending injury on April 20. The Red Foxes went on to play in the tournament, but one wonders if they would have gone all the way had she not broken her collarbone.
Megan was having a Player Of The Year type season in 2011, hitting .367 (good for 5th in the conference) with 6 homers and 34 RBIs in her shortened season. Her slugging percentage (.608), and on base percentage (.478) also were among the MAAC's best. Megan in 2011 was one of the most difficult batters in the nation to strike out, fanning only six times. Despite her injury, she was still named to the All-MAAC Second Team.
Bad news MAAC pitchers: Megan is healed and ready to go for one more season!
